Romo on Debut: "Good to Take a Hit"

Quarterback Tony Romo made his preseason debut against the Raiders on Friday



    Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo emerged from his preseason debut against the Raiders in Oakland feeling just fine, a good sign for the veteran, who is only a few months removed from minor back surgery to have a non-cancerous cyst removed.

    "It was good," Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. "It was good to take a hit. It was good to move around, throw and just know that it felt like training camp. I put that same tempo, that same kind of mindset each day I go out for practice. It carries over to the game. So that was a good feeling."

    Dallas has been bringing Romo along cautiously since the aforementioned surgery. He was held out of all off-season workouts, as you might remember, as well as the team’s preseason opener in the Hall of Fame game a little over a week ago.

    Playing in a couple series, the Dallas signal caller finished six-for-eight passing for 88 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. He was sacked once, but popped right back up, afterward.

    "Everything is good," Romo said.
